The Cottage Shop at 811 Westheimer Rd. is an undiscovered gem, mixing new clothing and accessories with gently worn designer clothing in one cozy location. The Cottage Shop helps women in crisis regain their self-esteem and dignity, while cultivating an empowering spirit. The Shop. Taste. Empower. party is an opportunity to explore the store while enjoying the fun and fa-la-la’s of the season.

Shoppers will enjoy the holiday sounds of DJ B-Easy and the MistleTones while perusing festive tablescapes designed by Williams Sonoma Home, Pottery Barn and West Elm. Up and coming fashion designer Alan Gonzalez will host an on-site fashion show featuring The Cottage Shop’s very own collection of little black dresses and holiday cocktail wear.
